This book and companion recordings of ÅrÄ« Ná¹siá¹hasahasranÄma contain these Holy Names, which are the remedy for the suffering of materially conditioned existence. ÅrÄ« means beautiful on account of being full of spiritual qualities; Ná¹siá¹ha is the Sanskrit Name of God, the omnipotent, omnipresent Creator and Master of the universe, in His half-man, half-lion incarnation; and sahasra-nÄma means a thousand Names. So ÅrÄ« Ná¹siá¹hasahasranÄma means âA thousand spiritually beautiful Names of Lord Ná¹siá¹ha.â Actually God is unlimited, and therefore He has an infinite number of Holy Names. These thousand Names are just the most prominent and beneficial of Lord Ná¹siá¹hadevaâs Holy Names. They are so powerful that anyone who simply hears or chants them regularly, with faith, becomes relieved of all material suffering. How is this possible? By the power of transcendental sound.
